This date is featured on Dozin' at the Knick.
Original Master Rescue Project. Master off previously unreleased Audience FOB DAT. SBDs of this are available on CD as a partial on "Dozin at the Knick", from GDP, and "Spring 1990", from the same fine folks. And, it is a large 96/24 set, in the 3+ GB range.
Judge your choice to download accordingly. If you prefer audience to SBD/CDs, and don't mind having some versions, this is for you.
Taping quality: equivalent to 1961 Bordeaux wine in terms of tape crafting. (1961 was apparently a very good year for Bordeaux.) Band Playing Quality: Row Jimmy and Blow Away are candy, as is most of the rest of this tour, given the large CD release... Some flaws, nach. Enjoy the audience being appreciative. Very 3-D auditory. Nice separation and bass.
Source: Some fine, fine audience taping work. The provenance is a bit complex, thanks to the "FOB Daredevils": yet, it was taped in an FOB sweet spot for the most part.
First set, thru Set II Victim, and, after China -> Rider: Richard Berner's B&K 4011's, 110º ORTF, hand-held @ 5' high, Prolink -> Neumann Power Supply -> D10, 26th Row Center, FOB -> DAT Master, Apogee 701/BETA -> NAK 682 ZX -> Sony Metal-SR/90 -> JVC TD-W354 -> Zoom H6 96/24 WAV -> Audacity -> FLAC 96/24.
They seem to have kept the audience around them pretty disciplined; the change in sources is noticeable.
China -> Rider: Schoeps CMC 421 Sub Cardioids, 100º, 1 row in front of soundboard, about 4 seats right. There may or may not be a full-security-body-tackle recorded, just because that crew delights in that kind of thing, then a likely fade-in back-of-board. All provenance bets are off at that point, but it still sounds very nice.
Only posting in 96/24 to keep the sound quality up, feel free to convert it if you like, I hear there are open-source CD-burners that convert on the fly. Mastered with Bose Quiet-Comfort 20 Headphones with NC on. Thanks, Pete-O!
